A safe, healthy childhood can set the stage for lifelong health. But no child raises herself. Family, friends and the community at large play a critical role in setting a child up for success. It’s all hands on deck. That’s why the best strategies for improving health involve and are led by the community.
Working together, communities can forge connections, build leaders and collaborate to improve health for all children. In turn, those healthy children grow to contribute to our community’s overall health.
Healthy Beginnings+Healthy Communities supports community-led efforts that impact health in the early years of life, and aligns with Northwest Health Foundation’s belief that we are most effective as a foundation when supporting the conditions for community organizations and members to develop common goals, and produce strategies and results that improve the lives of everyone.
